The union representing CP Rail employees says about 400 workers are set to walk the picket line across Manitoba as part of nation-wide strike.
Local Teamsters union business agent Eric Jorgensen says the rail workers will take strike action Wednesday.

He says workers in Winnipeg work at the rail yards on McPhillips and Keewatin Streets, while other crews going on strike are spread across the province.

The workers will reportedly join other CP workers walking the picket line as part of a national railway strike.

Jorgensen says a federal conciliator has been appointed help resolve the dispute.
